We’re Obsessed with Air Fried Grapes and You Should Be Too

TikTok geniuses are at it again. If you’re looking for creative grape recipes to use up your bag, or a unique take on your morning toast, the latest viral TikTok recipe may just be your answer to a delicious and unique foodie experience: air fried grapes! All it takes is a fresh bag of your favorite kind of grape and an air fryer, and you’ll shortly be on your way to tasty snack heaven.

Can You Air Fry Grapes?

Yes, it’s true! You can air fry your grapes.

Similar to roasted grapes, air fryer grapes come out looking crispy and juicy. The skins of the grapes will definitely be darker (a mix between the color of a grape and a raisin), and will start splitting.

Roasting the grapes gives them a more robust flavor when added to some kind of dish, a mix of warm and sweet that pairs well with creamy and savory dishes. By air frying them, you not only are saving yourself a ton of time (they only take 15 minutes to make), but you also avoid a very messy clean up after. It’s honestly the reason why we love air fryer recipes so much!

Air fryer grapes are obviously delicious to snack on as is. But if you’re thinking about taking your snack up a notch, you can copy the video from TikTok user @bearenger by adding a spreadable cheese to toast, topping it with your air-fried grapes, and drizzling it with some honey to finish. Yum!

How to Air Fry Grapes

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make air-fried grapes.


  • 1 heaping cup of seedless grapes
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Slice of toast, optional
  • Spreadable cheese of choice (ricotta, cream cheese, goat cheese, Brie, etc.), optional
  • Honey, optional


Step one: Season the grapes

To start, toss the grapes in a bowl with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Step two: Place in the air fryer

Transfer the seasoned grapes to the air fryer basket. Select your air fryer temperature to 400 degrees and press start.

Air fry the grapes for 10 minutes. If the grapes aren’t as juicy and crispy as you want, feel free to add them back in for another 3 to 5 minutes. It will all depend on how big your grapes are.

Step three: Prep your toast, or simply enjoy

Enjoy as is, or add them to a piece of toast with the spreadable cheese of your choice, then drizzle with honey. For an extra delicate finish, you can also add a sprinkle of thyme or lemon zest.

If you’re looking for even more clever ways to use up that bag of grapes—or how to become an air frying pro!—here are our favorite gorgeous grape recipes and easy air fryer recipes for beginners.
